The 2017 MedChemComm Emerging Investigator Lectureship is now open for nominations.
Nominations will close 14 November 2016.
The recipient of the lectureship will receive a contribution of up to £1000 towards speaking at a conference in 2017.
The lectureship is open to candidates who received their PhD in 2007 or later and who have made a significant contribution to medicinal chemistry in their early career, particularly if they have brought new ideas to drug discovery.
How you can nominate
